To small children please tell

Without magic wand or spell

That from a stick so cold to touch

When struck on box a flame will rush

Infant attention easily deployed

Clapping hands their overjoyed

Wide open eyes and mouths urge

“Repeat the trick when sparks emerge”

But explain that one condition’s set

Matchsticks must be dry not wet

So mind too must be pure as snow

For your fire to manifest and glow


O Lord I am only Thy child and just as a child understands the simple lessons given well, make my mind simple and pure. May I be mindful of Thy hidden glory manifest in every action, even that of striking a match to light a lamp.
